Our jerseys are 100% Tencel, no other combined material is used, which makes it totally recyclable, that is, it does not generate waste, because it is also biodegradable.
What is Tencel?
TENCEL™ is actually a brand owned by the Austrian company Lenzing AG.
Although Tencel can also refer to Lenzing's modal fabric, typically the "tencel" label refers to Tencel lyocell, which are the fibers we use in our jerseys.
Why is it sustainable?
TENCEL™ fibers have a botanical origin, they are made mainly from beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighboring countries.
Beech forests are a natural and renewable source of raw material.
The beech trees are harvested from FSC® certified sustainable forests and the fibers are manufactured through an environmentally responsible production process.
Tencel fibers are also compostable and biodegradable so they can be fully returned to nature.
TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers have earned BioPreferred® designation from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
